The terrorists we shouldn’t fear and the ones we should

This just in- our government is more concerned about bombs in underwear than anything really important- like your job, your mortgage being underwater, your credit card rates being jacked, your health care costs skyrocketing- but some clown, who shouldn’t have been on the plane in the first place- and we now have this:

All travelers flying into the U.S. from foreign countries will receive tightened random screening, and 100 percent of passengers from 14 terrorism-prone countries will be patted down and have their carry-ons searched, the Obama administration was notifying airlines on Sunday.

I’d say we’re going to have more problems with domestic terrorism as more people lose their jobs, their homes, the American dream. The real terrorists aren’t wearing bombs in their diapers- they are wearing suits and collecting millions in un-earned compensation each year.

Why do we need the largest military in the world- when 19 idiots can bring down our entire way of life with 4 of our commercial airliners and a little bit of spending cash?

It’s time to stop this stupidity- and look to start closing the gap between rich and poor- before the inevitable happens (study history).

I hate to say it- but, no matter how tight security gets on airplanes- even if we make everyone fly naked, there is still a way to blow planes out of the sky. Let’s concentrate on making the world a safer place by stopping the pillaging of the planet and the poor- for the sake of the new emperors of the earth.

And I’m sure this post will go over big with my regulars.

    Here’s a fun blog post putting this into perspective: http://chuckanutinstitute.org/cblog/index.php?/archives/5-What-Terrorist-Threat.html
    Number of highway deaths in the U.S. each year? An average of 42,000.
    Number of deaths by terrorism in the U.S. in 2001? 2,997.  In 2002? 0.  In 2003? 0.  In 2004? 0.  In 2005? 0. in 2006? 0.  In 2007? 0.  In 2008? 0.  In 2009? 0.
     
    Does that mean we should do absolutely nothing to prevent terrorism on airlines?  No, of course, not, but it does put things into perspective.  If 3,000 deaths by terror are so unacceptable that we must do absolutely everything we can to prevent them, then we ought also to be concerned about the 40,000 highway deaths per year (400,000 people per decade).
